His first experience with a surfboard took place in in Liguria, when he was 14 years old, thanks to a group of fellow snowboarders: from the very first time, although very improvised, Michele realized that surfing was his thing. At the age of 19, he moved to the Canary Islands for a while and then to Cornwall, where he lived for a couple of years. During this period, his love story with surfing officially began. For four years now, he’s been working as a surf instructor mainly in the Algarve region, Portugal. This job, besides being very satisfying, gave him the opportunity to travel a lot and thus surf the best waves. When not riding on a board, he loves swimming, rugby and drinking wine.
